Visiting teachers

GUEST WORKSHOPS

Guest workshops are open to everyone in the tango community, whether or not you take my regular classes. I try to bring the best teachers of social tango to Los Angeles every year so all of us can continue to grow as dancers and expand our knowledge and appreciation of this beautiful dance. These are teachers I want to study with, and I take the classes along with the students. I then review the material in my own classes so the students can practice and retain it.

All guest teachers are available for private lessons. Prices vary and discounts are available for multiple classes. Call me for information at (323) 653-5883.
